KEY SCRIPTURE: John 2:19 KJV “Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
After the Lord turned water into wine, and went ahead to cleanse the temple off the money changers and those selling goats, sheep, etc, the people acknowledged something unique about Jesus. They asked, what sign would you show us? The Lord said destroy this temple, and in three days time I will raise it again. He spoke about his own body. The Lord reveals clearly that, He is a Spirit being and lives within a house or temple which is His physical body. By that understanding, He was able to live above the many limitations of the body. We as saints of God, are also spirits living in earthly temples.2Co 5:1 KJV ” For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” This awareness is a fundamental truth for supernatural exploits.
There is another divine revelation that the Lord Jesus made in the statement about destroying the temple. He said if the temple was destroyed, he would build it up in three days. He did not say, My father would raise it, or the Holy Spirit, but said, I will raise it up. This means He is God. No one can raise his own dead body, except by an external power. Only Jesus could say such things because He is a mysterious being, for that matter, the very creator of the universe. John 10:18 KJV “No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.”
Dear child of God, what do you say about yourself? The scripture reveals we are born of the Spirit of God. The following is what the word says about those born of the Spirit. John 3:8 says the wind blows to wherever it wants, you can hear the sound of it, but you cannot tell, where it is blowing from or going. So is everyone born of the Spirit. It simply means you have a limit breaking potentials. You can only manifest this potential when you live in the Spirit and by the Spirit. Carnality which is living by the senses will deprive you of your supernatural potentials. Samson was on top of his world so long as he kept to the life of the Spirit, but was reduced to a piece of mockery when he responded to the voice of lust. Judges Ch 13-16
THOUGHT: LIFE IS EASIÈR IF LED BY THE SPIRIT
Judge 16:17 KJV” That he told her all his heart, and said unto her, There hath not come a razor upon mine head; for I have been a Nazarite unto God from my mother’s womb: if I be shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man.”
Rom 8:6 KJV “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
